      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $6.00
      SB (Hero):
      $27.24
      BB:
      $30.38
      MP3:
      $46.16
      CO:
      $5.00


      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, 9.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2) 8, 4, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.30, BB calls $1.30.

      Turn: ($4.6) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $2.18, Hero raises to $7.00,

      BB is 17/12/1 on 40 hands

      I put him on a small pair 33,55,66,77; 99 and TT are less likely; and I thought he's gonna bet/fold them on the turn

      Is this a good spot for a checkraise or should I refrain from bluffing on this limit?

      Hi hov100,


      Interesting hand. Now I'm thinking,
      what would I do with a small pair, 4x, 8x, here, if I was on a BB.
      I could think that you would mostly choose other lines if you had a hand here,
      if I wasn't floating very much here.
      This hand looks like a bluff, just because, I think, you would 2nd barrel with over-pairs, 8x, 4x.
      So these hands are almost never here.
      I don't know, maybe you are mixing-up your game here with strong hands also,
      but I would play like this (strong hands) if BB was floating a lot.

      Just give it up. C-bet makes a good work, too. Opponent's will fold more than 50% on a paired flops.

      I think it is not bad idea to turn your hand into bluff that spot
      He should b/f all of his high hands and I think even pp-s is really hard b/c to your turn c/r
      So mixing it up in your game is fine play
